Trans people: facts & information

How can schools support trans students and their families? What name and pronoun should be put on a trans student’s school documentation? What uniform or dress code applies to trans students? If trans students want to play sport which team should they play for?

These are just some of the questions answered in Supporting trans students, one of the FAQs in the Commission’s new set of fact sheets Trans people facts & information. These focus on common human rights issues faced by whakawāhine, tangata ira tane, fa’afafine, fakaleiti, akava’ine, trans, gender queer and other gender diverse and gender questioning people.
